10:50 pm
the law on the level of potentially accusing or potentially having violated the reekal act. i'm a disabled person according to social security administration. i'm part of a protected class under the ada and have proof that the human suvss aensh has vimeted the ada, the reeko act, the unrule act, the rehabilitation act of 1973 scr other applicable law. number 2, my comment to 2 fold and based on time i'm limited to the things that i can say. in regard to the sfmta, i'm going to read to you exerts from a hearing, 2 hearings. first hearing, 469950. let me read the last part of this hearing. it says
10:51 pm
here as far as the decision is concerned, it says here a muney, a violation of muney rules is filed. that is just one hearing that i had. the second hearing states there was a violation of rule 4 aut.1 five and 4.17. this is in regards to muney buses >> sur, thank you. thank you very much. next speaker, please >> hi, my name is john [inaudible] and resident of central market. i would like taactually mention the 7 percent affordable housing thing that people have talked about here today including the supervisor squz audience if they don't mind [inaudible] i guess they don't want to know. there is a [inaudible] 1979 mission that will build a total of 3079 units if you include
10:52 pm
the off site they are funding. my understanding is that is including 90 units that are affordable. that would improve that 7 percent, but some people on the board of supervisors and in the public and the non profit sector have advocateed gaens that building. to hear they are complaining about 7 percent being built but they are against a buildsing that will bring about 27 percent affordable, it is strange. i would also like to say that i support supervisor wieners in law legislation expense and hope fen many of you in the historic neighborhoods who represent the historic neighbors where big build outs are not always possible will also dotioning like that in your areas >> thank you. any toret member thofz public that would like to provide public comment
10:53 pm

10:54 pm
urges. line 20 inserting the word a between passes and law. i would like to make a motion to make those amendments. >> supervisor wiener made a motion to amendment the legislation z second by supervisor companys. can we take those without objection. those pass >> i understand these are not substant tv so it won't require continuance. the state attorney indicates that is correct. colleagues what happened in indiana was really dispickable and frankly as horrible as it was it is a helpful reminder that with all the progress we made in the united states or many parts of the united states around the civil rights and basic human
10:55 pm
dignity of lgbt people that we continue to see a political at mississippi sphere where people in elected office think it is okay to propose and vote for bills that take a class of americans and classify them as second class citizens. we see this around immigration and with respect to the lbgt in the community. it is important that as we get marriage equality in more and more states that we remember many many members of the lgbt community have no employment and housing protections and in fact we continue to see legislatures pass laws that say we are going to empower people to discriminate against lgbt people. it is good the state of indiana was forced to step back and monday the law. there are other states that tine to
10:56 pm
pursue this type of legislation have other forms of legislation discriminating. it is important to go on record and think this amended resolution does this well >> thank you supervisor campose >> i want to thank supervisor wiener for the amendments and i think one thing this will require is our department or all of us to become-be mindful of the fact that there may be additional pieces of legislation in different parts of the country that are introduced and i'm afraid with prez dense election coming up this is probably going to be more ofa curns, but i think it is important for us to be on record and to the extent that departments do not sponsor any state that actually does that. thank you >> thank you sfr visor campus. at this time we'll
10:57 pm
have a roll call vote on item 30 >> avalos aye. breed,i. campus aye. christensen,i. cohen, aye. farrell, aye. kim, aye. mar,i. tang, aye. wiener,i. yee, aye. there are 11 eye's. >> thiz regz lose is adopted unanimously. madam clerk can you calliteal 31 >> resolution to declare april 14 equal pay in the american sogez of women for leadership in advances awareness orphequal fay and encourage interaction to close the gender pay gap. >> president breed.
10:58 pm
>> earlier today supervisors cohen christensen tang campus and kim held a press conference in city hall to recognize equal pay. i want to thank emily [inaudible] on the kats of wem squn ruburta guise who is with the american association of university women for all their help today and their help to achieve equal pay here in san francisco. today april 14 represents how far into 2015 women must work in order to earn what men did in 2014. equal pay day is a symbol of ha far we need to go for equal pay. full time employed women on average earn 78 cents for every dollar men ern. that figure is slightly better in san francisco. i have seen it where it was 81 or 87 cents,
10:59 pm
but it is till not 100. for women of color the gap is bigger. whether folks have a college education and work in a white or blue caller job, or have childrens women are paid less than men. studies show with personal choizing and experiences are accounted for across industries and at every level the wage gap still persists. when women are undervalued and underpaid they have a harder time making ends meet carrying for the families and sabeing for retirement. the gap hurts women and families and our economy as a whole. this resolution will declare today equal pay day in san francisco and encourage further action to close the gender pay gap. this isn't a problem somewhere else, it isn't something we can pat ourselves on the back and say san francisco solved it already because right here in our own city we still have a
11:00 pm
discrepsancy and can do better. we recognize the challenge we face and highlight what we can do to solve the problem and encourage all san francisco company squz organizations to conduct a equal pay study as the gap did and correct any disparities. we appreciate the work of the gap and appreciate the work of the ecompanies like the gap who recognize this is a issue and we'll make sure they take steps so this isn't a issue in their companies. thank you to all my cosponsors and everyone that joined us to support this resolution. colleagues, i'm back. can we take this item same house, same call without objection? this resolution is adopted unanimously. are
